Richmond, VA (WTVR) -- Virginia's top budget writing and oversight panel is questioning Governor Bob McDonnell's decision to cut a $6.5-million deal with the Washington Redskins.

The group is upset the Governor's administration did not talk with them first about a deal to give the Washington Redskins monetary incentives to bring their training camp to Richmond.
